ABSTRACT
Deep level transient spectroscopy and capacitance-voltage measurements have been performed on an inverted metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) capacitor structure to measure the interface state density at the recrystallized silicon-underlying insulator interface. The effects of different recrystallization caps, annealing steps, and different underlying oxides have been investigated. An interface state density in the mid 1010 cm-2 eV-1 range can be consistently obtained, enabling well-behaved MOS transistor channels on the bottom of the recrystallized films.

    We have shown that considerable vacancy defects, introduced by MeV Si self-ion implantation, can survive a 900 °C/5 min annealing for gate formation. By analyzing the trap-limited Si interstitial diffusion, we have characterized these vacancy clusters. Furthermore, we show that the remaining...
